As most of us noticed, 2020 started pretty well. Then Covid-19 Virus arrived, and the end of January was showing signs of unusual events about to happen that would impact our life and others drastically worldwide for months to come. While in lockdown, I have taken the opportunity to keep my mind busy, and connect “virtually” with friends & new partners, and Kiyra is one of my new discoveries. I met her through a group which was set up to support yacht crews during the pandemic. We all ended up to bring a bit of joy & comfort to each other during those strange times.
Provisioning for a 123m Mega Yacht and seeing the mountain of Plastic Waste that accumulated on the dock from a few deliveries. Scary sight, I can promise you!
The time that our 55m yacht pulled up to a small and beautiful island in the Med and I assisted with the tender garbage runs ashore. Seeing the amount of plastic waste that was accumulated in 1 week from just our yacht truly horrified me. I felt in that moment that “we” (the Yachting Industry) needed to make a change by cutting out as much single-use plastic as possible from onboard our yachts.
